PHOTO: Look What Trump Did With His Plane 1 Day After Getting Nomination

It’s done, Donald Trump is officially the Republican nominee and along side him he has Mike Pence, his running mate.

Published

It’s done, Donald Trump is officially the Republican nominee and along side him he has Mike Pence, his running mate. Now that the important stuff has been squared away, it’s time for a new look! So that’s just what he did.

On a typical Trump day, you will find him flying from city to city on his “Trump” plane. A red, white and blue plane with the word “Trump” written in HUGE letters on the side.

Just like this…
trump-plane

Now that Pence is going to be representing and campaigning all over the states, guess what Trump got him? It’s actually pretty incredible. Our Republican Nominee figured it would be good for Pence to fly in a plane that said more than just “Trump” so he got him one…check it out:

Capture

Although it has not been made clear if Trump will be replacing his own plane with this one, or if he had it made specifically for Pence alone…but, does it matter?

Interestingly enough, the new plane has a lot of similarities with ‘Air Force One’.

Here’s a picture taken side by side for better comparison:

air-force-one-trump-pence-plane

When it comes to Trump, there is no doubting that he knows how to get things done in style and with a huge deliver! This is why you can never predict what he’ll do next.

This bold statement may seem like nothing at first, but it has the potential to create hope. Americans need to be fired up and morale built going into the voting booth in November. The dedication and investment Trump is putting into his run for President is a sure sign he does not plan to back down. The design of his new jet, is patriotic, and needs to be seen in the sky.

Also…it’s going to PISS off liberals.

Sooo….BONUS!

BREAKING: This Is The SICK List Of 8 People Hillary Was Found With After Her Associate Was Found Dead

This is beyond disturbing!

Published

on

It’s truly startling the massive trail of dead bodies that keeps accumulating around Hillary Clinton, as this crooked swamp witch will simply kill off anyone who tries to spill the beans on her dirty little secrets. Cross this woman and you’re likely to get “suicided” with a double tap to the back of the head. As Hillary comes under closer scrutiny for her dirty dealings with the Uranium One scandal, the timing of yet another death becomes extremely suspicious given her track record for conveniently making people disappear who are about to implicate her in another scandal.

Now an extremely disturbing list has just been produced of all the mysterious deaths that Hillary has been tied to just since last year, as the total death toll swells to over 60. 

1 .Steve Mostyn

Several weeks ago, ex-DNC chair Donna Brazile revealed how Hillary rigged the Democratic primaries against Bernie Sanders, and how she believed that Hillary was behind the unsolved death of  DNC staffer Seth Rich. Brazile said she “feared for her life” and worried she’d be killed next, and took additional measures to protect herself by installing a security system in her home and would pull the blinds to thwart off snipers.  Now on the heels of Brazile’s startling revelation, it’s just been reported that a Democratic mega-donor and Houston attorney Steve Mostyn has just been found dead, where true to form, the man’s death is being ruled a “suicide.”

“Mostyn had once been close to Clinton, but their relationship came under severe stress back in 2015 when an ethics watchdog group Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) filed a formal complaint against Clinton and her campaign for illegal coordination with the Ready for Hillary Super PAC.,” Mixed Politics reported. “The timing of his death his disturbing given the fact that Clinton has once again found herself at the center of scrutiny for alleged dirty dealings during her time as Secretary of State with the Uranium One deal in which she and her foundation were paid off to approve a deal effectively turning over 20% of our Uranium deposits to the Kremlin.”

2. Joseph Mifsud

Joseph Mifsud

Just last a week, a well-known professor mysteriously vanished without a trace from Rome, where no one has been able to locate him at his work or place of residence. Joseph Misfud was at the heart of Hillary’s “dirt” claim went missing without a trace, leaving a trail of questions. Mifsud disappeared last week, and hasn’t showed up for work where he teaches at the University of Rome. According to one of Mifsud’s colleagues, he had recently declared that he had “compromising material” on Hillary that would serve as the missing link between Hillary and the dirt the Russians had on her. CNN reported:Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese academic suspected of being a link between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, was once a regular on the foreign policy circuit, attending conferences the world over. Now, after being identified as a key figure in the U.S. special counsel investigation into Russian influence over the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Mifsud has gone to ground.”

3. Journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia

Daphne Caruana Galizia

Several months ago, investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was behind the massive leak of 11.5 million documents called the Panama Papers that revealed how a Panama law firm helped some of the richest people from all around the world establish offshore tax havens on the Central American country. This illegal scheme allowed crooked politicians like Hillary Clinton to avoid paying taxes, as they’d simply stash massive amounts of cash in Panama.

But Galizia would never have the chance to testify about the investigation or what she knew about Hillary. The investigative journalist was blown to smithereens after a rigged car bomb detonated just moments after she drove away from her residence. Immediately after news broke of Galizia’s horrific murder, alarm bells around the world immediately went off, with political pundits  immediately labeling Galizia’s death a “political murder.”

“Shocking doesn’t begin to describe this,” journalist Mark Micallef wrote, where it’s believed that Galizia was blown up by a bomb that was being remotely controlled and detonated by an IED.

In the weeks leading up to her murder, Galizia had told authorities that she was being constantly harassed and threatened with her life. ABC News reported: “Caruana Galizia had been sued for libel because of various articles she wrote on her blog Running Commentary, and she had filed a report with the police two weeks ago that she was receiving threats. Monday evening’s Parliament session was scrapped, except for briefings about the bombing scheduled to be given by Mr Muscat and opposition leader Mr Delia.”

4.State Department and Federal Agent Kurt Smolek

Back in August, State Department and federal agent employee Kurt Smolek’s decaying corpse was pulled from the Potomac River. Smolek was hot on the trail exposing Hillary’s ties to PizzaGate, as well as her ties to a human child trafficking ring in Cambodia.

Cambodia is a country that is infamous for their human trafficking, child sex trafficking, and child sex tourism. The location where Smolek was stationed was a hot spot of this type of illegal activity, and it’s possible that he had been privy to some damning information on Hillary Clinton.

“Yet another State employee is found mysteriously dead, his body pulled from the Potomac after being reported missing,” one investigator stated. This is related to PizzaGate as possible ties to the child trafficking and the criminals behind the numerous email and fraud related ‘mysterious deaths’. There are clear links to overseas child trafficking hotspots, recent mysterious deaths related to the DNC / Clinton / email scandals, links to Clinton’s state dept.” 

5.  Lord Jacob Rothschild 

Lord Jacob Rothschild

“In what’s being reported as a freak, unfortunate private plane and helicopter accident, where the two aircrafts collided mid-air, leaving four dead, is far more mysterious than is being said, based on who was on board and is now dead,” Amanda Shea from mPolitical previously reported.

“What makes this collision strange, outside of how it happened, is that it took place right outside the Rothschild estate and only three of the four victims have been named. It’s being speculated that Lord Jacob Rothschild is among the casualties and if true, this could be really bad for Hillary. So far, the only victims to be identified, perhaps on purpose, is the pilot of the helicopter, Captain Mike Green, and a student and flight instructor aboard the Cessna, 18-year-old Saavan Mundae, who was being instructed by Jaspal Barha, according to The Sun. So, was Jacob Rothschild, with a very big connection to the Clintons the fourth victim. Several sources seem to suggest that’s the case but the Rothschild estate has not confirmed nor denied Jacob’s well-being.”

6. Shaun Lucas

 

Shaun Lucas

Shaun Lucas was one of the unfortunate souls to find himself murdered, after he was the attorney who served the DNC with a lawsuit last year, that proved that Debbie Wasserman Schultz worked with Hillary to rig the primary election against Bernie Sanders. The complaint was served right before Wasserman Schultz resigned amid the Wikileaks email scandal on July 24. Less than one month after Lucas served the DNC amid the Wikilekeaks email scandal on July 24, Lucas would be found dead in his bathroom, where the cause of death is still “pending” according to the medical examiner’s office.

7. Seth Rich

DNC staffer, Seth Rich

DNC staffer Seth Rich savagely murdered last July, right after feeding Wikileaks with some very disturbing dirt on Hillary. Several weeks later, Wikileaks would release thousands of emails related to Hillary, but Rich at that point was already dead. After leaving his Northwest D.C. neighborhood early Sunday morning on July 10, Rich was savagely shot multiple times before the shooter fled the scene, leaving zero evidence for authorities to solve the murder.

8.Beranton J. Whisenant Jr

Beranton J. Whisenant Jr

 

After Lucas’ untimely and mysterious death, another attorney by the name of Beranton J. Whisenant Jr. it’s believed to have taken over the case against the DNC and Hillary, and had been working in recent months on exposing Wasserman-Schultz’s fraud and visa case in Florida. But just like Shaun Lucas and Seth Rich who died under mysterious circumstances after getting too close to Hillary and the DNC’s dirty secrets, Whisenant’s life has just come to an abrupt end. His body was just found washed up on a beach in Hollywood, Florida, and investigators have absolutely no explanation for how he wound up dead from trauma to the head.

BREAKING: Democratic Party About To Implode After Obama Admin Just Threw Clintons Under The Bus In Major Way

Published

on

The Democrat party loves to portray themselves to the American public as a united front fighting for the disadvantage and the so-called oppressed in the country. Though with just a little digging that comradery facade falls apart like a cheap suit from Walmart. Ever since President Donald Trump trounced Hillary Clinton last year, the Democratic party has been in shambles with no clear leadership which has led to infighting in the already fractured party. With President Trump draining the swamp and closing in on the scoundrels in Washington D.C. that have been actively destroying our country top Democratic officials are turning on each other to save their skin.

And, that is precisely what just happened when advisors from Barack Obama’s administration stepped forward to torpedo the Clinton clan which could finish the already floundering Democratic party for good. 

Over the past several weeks, there have been multiple sexual allegations made against politicians as well as top Hollywood executives that has rocked the establishment. Senator Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Charlie Sheen all have been fingered as sexual deviants with many people calling for their arrest to answer for their crimes. However, while their nasty deeds are disgusting, they aren’t the first liberal scum to use their power and status to prey on innocent victims.

As we all are aware, Bill Clinton was known for his malfeasance while in office as governor and president of the United States. For years, Democrats have turned a blind eye to Bill Clinton’s sexual assaults and rape allegations so that they could use his popularity to push their sick liberal agenda forward in the country. Barack Obama used Bill Clinton to help his campaign in 2012 and also Bill campaigned for two-timed failed presidential candidate and wife, Hillary Clinton.

Well, now that cozy arrangement appears to be falling apart as former top advisors to both Barack Obama and even Bill Clinton are coming forward to support Monica Lewinsky.

Here is more from People Politics:

Following multiple sexual misconduct allegations made against high-profile politicians like Roy Moore and Al Franken, former top advisers to President Obama and the Clintons have voiced their support for Monica Lewinsky.

During an interview with MSNBC, Jennifer Palmieri — the communications director for Hillary Clinton who also worked for Bill Clinton‘s administration — said that she was sorry for everything Lewinsky had gone through.

“Monica Lewinsky was my intern and the relationship the president had with her was very inappropriate,” she said. “It was a consensual relationship, but he was the President of the United States and she was a 24-year-old intern — that is taking advantage of a power dynamic on a historic scale.”

She also revealed that in April she ran into Lewinsky for the first time in 20 years and “I told her that I was really sorry for everything that she had been through.”

“Her whole life was defined by this one mistake and her life was — I don’t want to say it was ruined because I hope it’s not,” she added.

Palmieri was also asked to respond to a comment that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) made during an interview with The New York Times, in which she said she thought Bill should have stepped down from the presidency during the scandal. Gillibrand had previously endorsed Hillary during the 2016 election and entered the Senate in 2009 after she was elected into Hillary’s former seat after she became Secretary of State under Obama.

“The Clintons have done a[n] enormous amount of good in this country and despite that, they’ve got friends who are not always going to be there for them, and it’s something I’ve seen happen to them quite a bit, but they’ll survive,” Palmieri said of Gillibrand’s comments.

Not only did Palmieri show public support for Monica Lewinsky but so did Reverand Al Sharpton and former Obama staffer Alyssa Mastromonaco. Then, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, also came forward this past Thursday stating that Bill Clinton should have resigned from office after his affair with Lewinsky was discovered.

This public support for Monica Lewinsky is a long time coming especially from those in the Democratic party that has made a living throttling males for so-called man-splaining and “rape culture” in America. The Clintons all but destroyed Monica for coming forward about her sexual encounters with Bill Clinton while he was president. Instead of the Hillary Clinton blaming her husband for using his power to seduce the young intern, Hillary unleashed a series of personal attacks against Lewinsky that ultimately destroyed any chance of her having a career.

So, after decades of Democrats taking Bill Clinton’s side, it is a shocking to see these former advisors now saying the opposite of the past narrative.

This change in the narrative proves that the Democratic party is imploding on itself and it is only a matter of time before it is further destroyed. Without any apparent leadership, the Democrats are in disarray and are now turning on themselves to save their own skin from more embarrassment by their own hypocrisy.

What will happen next is anyone’s guess but hearing of top advisors throwing Bill Clinton under the bus for his sexual deviancy does serve as a good indication that the liberal party may be beyond repair.

Corrupt Dem Congresswoman Just Busted Stealing Money From Children – What She Did With Money Will Make You SICK!

This will piss you off!

Published

on

And once again we have a Democrat congressperson excelling at what they do best, lying, cheating and stealing!

She partied with the Obama, Pelosi and Reid, traveled on Air Force one next to President Obama, and cast her superdelegate vote for Crooked Hillary Clinton although they delegates should have gone for Socialist Bernie Sanders. But today Corrine Brown is in federal court for stealing scholarship money from school children. Yes, you read that correctly, “the woman of the people,” stole money. FROM CHILDREN!

The disgraced congresswoman must now defend herself against allegations that she funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from a non-profit charity, One Door for Education, into her own filthy pocket. If convicted on all 24 counts, she faces 357 years in prison and $4.8 million in fines. Only a Democrat being a Democrat!

From the very beginning, Brown has been shrouded in deep controversy. Right after winning her election in 1992, the Federal Election Commission accused Brown of violating numerous campaign finance laws. And that was even before the campaign finance laws became strick under the McCain/Feingold law that forced the creation of so-called “Super Pacs.” Most notably, she accepted donations from foreign citizens and even failed to report the use of a corporate plane which she managed to get her greasy paws on. And investigators are saying that’s just the tip of the ethical iceberg.

First Coast News:

Corrine Brown pleads for mercy, prosecutors ask for prison time

Former Jacksonville area Congresswoman Corrine Brown took the stand Thursday afternoon, pleading for mercy from federal judge Timothy Corrigan.

“I am sorry you have to be here today to see me in this situation,” Brown said in her statement to the court. “I never imagined I would one day be in court asking people to speak on my behalf – never. In hindsight, I wished I had been more diligent in overseeing my personal and professional life The idea that some people could believe these charges hurt me because it runs contrary to everything I’ve ever believed and done in my life. I hope and pray these proceedings to don’t make them [ordinary people] lose faith in the system. I humbly ask for mercy and compassion.”

Brown was convicted on 18 counts of fraud and corruption in May.

The lead prosecutor in the sentencing hearing argued Thursday that the former congresswoman should be sentenced to about 7.5 to 9 years in federal prison. Her defense attorney is seeking probation and community service.

Prsecutor Tysen Duva told the court based on her actions during the investigation and in the trial, she should receive the most prison time out of the three co-conspirators.

Brown wore a magenta suit to the courthouse Thursday and briefly appeared in the overflow courtroom prior to the sentencing hearing.

Brown’s defense attorney James Smith objected to various aspects of the sentencing recommendations, including how much money Brown should be culpable for.
Prosecutor Duva asked the court, “What accountability does the law require?” during his presentation.

Duva said Brown was accustomed to receiving money she should not have received.
She also lied about donations to colleges, churches and other entities.

He also argued that Brown has made ludicrous comments during the investigation, including a comment where she essentially said that had investigators not been looking into her case, the Pulse shooting in Orlando would never have happened. She also referred to the charges as “bogus” and “racist,” implying that she was targeted for her race in the case.

Duva objected to that notion by saying, “She was targeted because she committed fraud, not because she was black or white.”

She attacked numerous agencies during the investigation, which Duva states shows her character as a person.

“Why do you support someone who says this nonsense?” Duva questioned the court Thursday, referring to the upcoming character witnesses set to speak.

We’re in our first break for #Corrine Brown’s sentencing hearing. U.S. attorney A. Tysen Duva just completed the government’s presentation. He passionately described her as a trailblazer politician who morphed into a liar and a fraud. @FCN2go pic.twitter.com/a1Irg2QEmr— Julia Jenaé (@JuliaJenaeFCN) November 16, 2017
Duva claims Brown “failed miserably” at being transparent during her time in office as a congresswoman.

“This is systemic and this is who she became,” said Duva, arguing the character witnesses cannot overshadow the conduct she performed in the criminal case.

“It’s not something that should be present in American democracy,” he said.

Duva said the judge has to make a difficult decision in this case.

Brown has previously asked for delays in her sentencing due to storm damage to her home and mental and physical welfare checks, but all those motions were denied.

On Wednesday, prosecutors recommended reduced prison time sentences for Brown’s co-conspirators, former of chief of staff Ronnie Simmons and fake charity founder Carla Wiley. Judge Time Corrigan accepted this recommendation for a reduced prison time range of 21-27 months for Wiley and 33-41 months of Simmons. More on that hearing can be read here.

Brown, Simmons and Wiley will not receive their final sentencing until Dec. 4, according to recent court documents.

Corrine Brown Character Witness Testimony: Nov. 16, 2017

Corrine Brown had several witnesses come forward Thursday in support of her through witness testimony during the sentencing hearing.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee provided a glowing character witness of Corrine Brown during her sentencing hearing Thursday.

Jackson Lee described via telephone testimony it as her “privilege” to characterize Corrine Brown as a “loving person.”

She said Brown has had a “pointed and direct effort [in] helping others, not herself.”

The veterans’ community loved Congresswoman Brown, Jackson Lee said, stating that Brown has helped those with PTSD and other issues following fighting overseas. She also stated Brown helped tremendously with relief efforts during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

“That shows a character of giving to others unselfishly,” Jackson Lee said.

A bishop from the Orlando area stated that Brown would help their community when other politicians couldn’t make things happen. He said she was “driven by wanting to support … and bless others.”

One woman who went to school with Brown’s daughter got emotional during her testimony in support of Brown. She said Brown taught her valuable lessons that helped her thrive in her military career and how to treat her soldiers.

“She’s been my champion .. my mentor,” the woman said.

Dr. Oliver Hunter of Houston recommended that Brown receive community service instead of incarceration time.

Another witness came forward and said Brown should be out helping others instead of in jail because “the people trust her.”

Melissa Alexander came forward to speak on behalf of Brown, describing her as a “blunt and passionate” woman. She cited that she’s been supportive of other people even up to the sentencing hearing.

Marissa Alexander, character witness for #CorrineBrown responded to the prosecutor’s criticism of Brown’s vocal personality. “She’s a largely blunt & passionate, persistent & formidable person. There’s a difference between transactional leadership & transformative leadership.

One man came forward and said Brown has helped other garner jobs through projects she’s worked on in Jacksonville and other areas. He beseeched the judge to “embrace her through your mercy” and not give her any prison time.

Roselyn, a life-long friend from Brooklyn, New York, came forward to provide her insight into who Brown is as a person. She said Brown is a passionate and hard-working woman who has long been a beacon of support for those in need of help.

After lunch, political consultant David Muller shared testimony on Brown, implying that she’s a genuine, caring person.

“It’s never about her,” he said. “She is the most tenacious fighter for people.”

He also discussed a time where Brown called him up and asked for help getting a train, so that she could get supplies to Haiti following an earthquake. She had 18 tractor trailers full of supplies and moved them via a cruise ship to Haiti, Muller said.

“It’s never about her. It’s about helping other people,” he said. “She is a wonderful, compassionate person.”

Many in the court clapped following Muller’s testimony about Brown.

Corrine Brown issues a statement during sentencing hearing

Former Congresswoman Corrine Brown issued a statement during the sentencing hearing Thursday, apologizing to the court, her family, friends and supporters.

“First and foremost, I want to thank my family friends and supporters for their continued prayers and support.”

“I have always strived to protect my name and my reputation”

She said the charges against her are not who she is.

“It runs contrary to everything I am and everything I’ve ever done in my life.” Brown said in her statement. “Public service is an honor and a privilege.”

“I ask that you take into consideration all that I’ve done in my life, and I humbly ask for mercy and compassion. Thank you very much.”

Additional arguments by defense attorney

The defense attorney belabored the point that they are against the notion that Brown abused a position of trust, which is established by the evidence presented in the trial.

Smith explained the definition of obstruction of justice, which Brown is accused of doing while taking the stand by the prosecutor, stating that it is the “intention or deliberate effort while on the stand to make material falsehoods.”

The judge wasn’t so sure and asked the defense attorney to elaborate.

Smith appeared to get emotional after posing two questions: “What type of sentence does justice require in this case?” and “How do you sentence someone who is a legend?”

He attributes some of her actions to the progress our country has made in terms of relations for black people.

Smith said he met with an Orlando attorney who was from Jacksonville and said the attorney described Brown as “our Martin Luther King” for black Jacksonville natives.

“None of those people had to push the boulder up the mountain like she did,” said Smith, referring to others in Congress. “She truly is a legend.”

Smith said “extensive rigorous community service” would be much more appropriate for Brown than going off to federal prison for five years. Restitution is also not conducive to prison time, Smith argued.

The judge will also be accepting additional letters in support of Brown.

Court recessed at about 2:40 p.m. Thursday. The final sentencing will take place on Monday, Dec. 4 at 10 a.m.

Following the recess, Smith briefly spoke with media regarding the atmosphere in the courtroom, confirming that it was at some points emotional for him because he’s gotten a chance to know Brown over the year-plus they’ve been working together. He stated some of the emotions just show that he’s only human.

The Initial Trial

There are a lot of moving parts in the case against Corrine Brown and her co-conspirators.

Carla Wiley first became involved in the fraud scheme when she started dating Ronnie Simmons.

Carla Wiley, President of the now-defunct fake charity One Door for Education. She pleaded guilty last March to wire fraud, and agreed to testify against Brown.

She was president of a charity called One Door for Education, which was never actually registered as a 501(c)(3).

The fake charity received more than $800,000 in four years, with about only $1,200 of it actually going to scholarships for students. That money is now gone.

Simmons was dating Wiley when he told her he needed a nonprofit to financially back a reception for congresswoman Brown in 2012. Wiley offered One Door for Education as an option for that reception.

The charity claimed to give scholarships to poor and underprivileged children seeking the become teachers.

During the initial trial earlier this year, Brown’s defense attorney, James Smith, described her as a hardworking congresswoman who was dedicated to her constituents.

Lead prosecutor A. Tysen Duva argued during the trial that Ronnie Simmons worked under Brown and did her bidding by taking out $800 a day from the One Door for Education bank account and depositing it into Brown’s personal bank account. He did this numerous times, according to Duva and evidence released earlier this month.

The fake charity was essentially used as a slush fund for Corrine Brown’s travels, expenses and shopping, according to the prosecutors.

She used the money put in her bank account to go to Nassau, Bahamas with her daughter, fly to Beverly Hills and shop along Rodeo Drive, and attend a Beyoncé concert, according to court documents and previous reports by First Coast News.

The prosecutors also argued that Brown committed wire fraud, mail fraud and stole money from the government after she lied on tax documents.

Brown had friends in high places, such as former CSX CEO Mike Ward. She would ask them for donation to Open Door for Education and many of them gladly donated, according to previous reports and prosecutor testimony.

Ward, for instance, contributed $35,000 to One Door for Education after learning that the money would go toward providing students with iPads for learning.

Prosecutors also argued that Brown lied about and inflated what she gave in tithes to various churches. The churches came forward in the trial and said the donations claimed to be given by Brown did not match their records, to which Brown said she sometimes gave anonymous donations.

Other legitimate scholarship organizations came forward and said they had never received funds from Brown’s charity.

Meanwhile, Brown’s tax returns claimed she contributed as much as $30,000 – 20 percent to a third of her income, to various charities.

Prosecutors also claimed that without the cash deposits that Ronnie Simmons made to her bank account, she would have overdrawn her account numerous times during 2012 to 2015.

When Brown took the stand, she denied any wrongdoing on her part and said she trusted the wrong people and said they were behind the unlawful acts.

She cried multiple times on the stand and said she was not to blame for what had happened, according to previous reports.

Overall, the prosecution argued that $330,000 of the money garnered through One Door for Education was used for events receptions surrounding the congresswoman. Meanwhile, $70,000 of that money went to cash in the congresswoman’s pocket. Carla Wiley pocked more than $100,000, while Simmons is accused of pocketing thousands of thousands of dollars for himself.

The worst part about this whole mess is the fact that everyone knew this woman was crooked but still had no issue palling around with her. She has had issues since the moment she won her election and the Democrat Party has stood by her without question. Yet they are the party who claims to be for the people. Yeah, unless those people are underprivileged children who want to get an education that is.

Please share if you want to see this congresswoman behind bars….
